We stayed with them for the first 5 then flipped. Overall twas a gr8 run and we finished a really strong last mile. Also there was this really SKETCH van at the very start of the run that was covered in green stuff to make it look camouflaged....very sketch stuff but fun:) Sat, 22 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 21, 2017 AM: 6 miles- 2 one mile repeats Today was a solid run on the girls side! I'm so proud of everyone for coming out and doing their best every day! We are going to do great things this year! Fri, 21 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 20, 2017 AM: 5 mile adventure run Ran a cool trail out in little valley. I kinda ran solo and it was cool. The first 1.5 was rough but once I stopped worrying about the pain it kinda went away! I got a little bored at mile 3 and almost started to do some fartleks but then I got lost haha. Finally found bae sue and coach Powell lol finished strong with them Thu, 20 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 19, 2017 AM: 6 mile tempo Eh. It was a weird run. Decently mediocre. I don't feel like I really did the best I could've done but ima do much better in the future:) Wed, 19 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 18, 2017 AM: 5 miles + strides Ran the boneyard today. Felt dece but could've been worse. Then we had kids camp! No major incidents this week just some low key bribery:) PM: 3 miles easy Met up with Bryson Kasey and Tyler and did an AWESOME night run! We did it during the lightning storm and it was SO COOL. It was a really good chill run Tue, 18 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 17, 2017 Mon, 17 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 15, 2017 AM: 8 miles little black mountain Today's run was rough not gonna lie.

Shout out to serra for honorary freshman of the year:) Sat, 15 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 14, 2017 AM: 2 dirt mile repeats Daaaaang! Our girls team is legit! We did mile repeats out in treasure valley today and man everyone killed it!! Everyone I talked to went 20 to 30 seconds faster on both repeats! I think we kinda surprised coach lol there's a lot more where that came from:) it felt great to just run at a faster pace after the really hilly run yesterday! And my new shoes helped SO MUCH. Overall a pretty swell run Fri, 14 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 13, 2017 AM: 7 miles Hurricane Rim trail was really pretty! It had lots of hills and was fun but lady coach told me to turn back with Hailey H at 3 miles cuz of my almost stress fracture so we did and it was a great run! Hailey is super awesome and she is gonna do amazing things this year! When we got back we stretched then I felt like I should run more so when Anna and Amanda came back i did another mile with them. I'm so glad I have awesome team mates that make running enjoyable!! PM: rest and work Thu, 13 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 12, 2017 AM: Vo2 max test (15min) Holy cow. Today was mentally exhausting. We did the vo2 max test and it was really hard. I don't know what it is with me and running around the track but it's just so hard for me mentally. I'm really excited to be able to run the courses where it's different and stuff but I'm really proud of how well our team did today! Our top 5 girls went faster than any of the girls did last year! And I almost had a 400 meter pr! Thanks Lauren you pushed me sooo hard:) tragically, I am getting the start of a stress fracture rip. I'm gonna get new shoes today hopefully that will help me out. I'm just realizing not every day is gonna be my best and that is totally ok!! Improving in the long run is what I'm gonna focus on right now. I love running:) Wed, 12 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 11, 2017 AM: 5 miles easy + strides Woohooo. Today's run was actually pretty great!! And Bailey's back!!!!! Me her and Chloe ran together today. Twas a gr8 time. We started out at a dece pace then the last 2 miles we dropped a minute each!! I felt really good after. This season is gonna be so amazing and I can hardly wait! Also we had a very eventful kids camp today lol. The kids and Carson were brutally attacking the trees and they wouldn't stop until we told them to go chase Carson:) That is the longest and fastest I have seen those children run it was awesome:) then they started brutally attacking carson with sticks and rocks and such. Pretty sketch kids not gonna lie. Overall it was way fun tho! PM: 3 miles Ran 3 miles with my dad at the golf course today. I didn't go till like 8:30 so the weather was SPECTACULAR!! I averaged a 6:36 not counting my breaks (1:30) which was 19:47!! That just put into perspective how much I have grown from last year and even track season. I can barely contain my excitement for this season! It just feels amazing to FINALLY experience my best. I have no words to describe it. I love running and I love my crazy team<3 Tue, 11 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 10, 2017 AM: 2 mile warm up, 500 m hill repeats, cool down for mileage Today's run was very rewarding. We did hill repeats behind the school and it was really difficult. But I am stronger than those hills and so is everyone on my team! Although we all went different paces we conquered that hill! For me it was just a matter of deciding if I was gonna do my best today and I decided to. I felt amazing and exhausted afterward:) it was awesome to have the coaches back today cheering us on! PM: 30 min aquajogging with the fam bam Mon, 10 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 07, 2017 AM: 4 miles Today we had a easy run out in little valley. Pretty great!

It's wasn't easy at all but I was able to make a big push mentally and finish hard. We went a little farther than we did last week with the tempo so that's even more awesome!! I'm super glad that Chloe ran with me today it helped me out a ton to not give up. Thanks dude:) PM: 3 miles Another 3 mile afternoon run with dad. It has been getting hotter and hotter every day! I was sweating so bad lol. It was a really good run tho because I physically was exhausted but mentally I was able to push it in hard. I think that changing my mind during races will make all the difference this year. Can't wait:) Thu, 06 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 05, 2017 AM: 5 miles Haha me and Chloe didn't get the memo to meet at the HS so we just ran together. It was a great run and we were going a pretty good pace the whole time! I appreciate that she likes to pick up the pace on mileage days, it makes the run a lot more fun and interesting lol:) PM: 3 miles Oh man it was a little toasty outside today! Ran the golf course with my padre and I felt really dehydrated. I haven't been drinking like any water and that's a slight problem lol. Ima definitely work on that the rest of this week Wed, 05 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 04, 2017 AM: 5 miles + hill repeats Heck yeah! I love hill repeats!!

I ran with Haley most of the time today and she rocked it! The elevation made breathing kinda hard but we got through it. The team only got lost a couple times lol:) I can't wait to start racing! Thu, 29 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 28, 2017 <p>AM: 7 miles: 3.75 mi warm-up, 15 min tempo, and cooldown for mileage</p> <p>Today was an AMAZING RUN!! We did our warm-up and then started our tempo. We went about a 6:35-6:40 pace. I felt awesome because I made sure that I was in it mentally. Usually I am ok the first half then I fall off, but we all stayed as a pack until minute 13 then we started spreading a little. I was able to finish right behind Bailey and it felt really good;) I told myself that I can do anything that my amazing teammates can do and that my best would be good enough. It worked! My biggest focus this year is going to be mentally strong through the good and the bad and to always do my best although it will vary from day to day. I love running:)</p> Wed, 28 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 27, 2017 <p>AM: 6 miles</p> <p>Today we ran out in the bone yard and it was pretty quality.
